Bottle Into tulip
Appearance- dark reddish/brown, light tan head, good lacing
Aroma- Deep malts, toffee, sherry, apples, dark fruits of fig/dates, some caramel and toasted bread, gets better as it warms
Flavor- sweet but not overbearing, toffee, toasted malts, apples but more of a cooked apple, figs/dates, sherry notes still present, warming alcohol, a sipper for sure
Mouthfeel- medium/heavy, lower end of carbonation, warming alcohol
Overall- One of my favorites, not hoppy like many 'merican barelywines, and I agree with calling this an old ale. I look forward to it every year and grab at least 2 sixes. Finally gonna lay one or two down this year and see what some age does to it.

5/5 rDev +21.4%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Bottled September 10th, 2013. Halfway through, about an hour and a halfway after pouring, so it's ~60*F and IMO, at its most flavorful prime. (March 9 2014). Poured into a 16oz tulip.
Appearance- Poured aggressively, a deep brown with two fingers of brown head.
Smell- Grassy caramel.
Taste- Sweet, burnt, caramel, dark fruits, then pine. Crisp resiny aftertaste. Very little alcohol presence
Mouthfeel- Slightly thin for the style.Creamy at first, but quickly thins as it warms and oxidizes. Almost watery as I'm writing this, but that is expected 90 minutes after pouring.
One of my favorite beers in one of my favorite styles. Very sweet and malty with a bitter finish. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys strong ales/barleywines, or scotch ales.

3.91/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Amber reddish color with a thin beige head with low retention.
Aroma of dark and red fruits, licorice and port wine.
Intense flavor of prunes, caramels, charred wood, red fruits, house wine, fig, raspberry, smoked, roasted and toasted malts. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 10.2% is harmonic with the beer. Sticky feeling.
Beer with good complexity and lower drinkability given its sweetness and sticky flavors, partially expected from the style.
Serving type: on-tap
